1. littleBits is an opensource library of discrete electronic components pre-assembled in tiny circuit boards. Just as Legos allow you to create complex structures with very little engineering knowledge, littleBits are simple, intuitive, space-sensitive blocks that make prototyping with sophisticated electronics a matter of snapping small magnets together. With a growing number of available modules, littleBits aims to move electronics from late stages of the design process to its earliest ones, and from the hands of experts, to those of artists, makers and designers.

  4. Sorry for the slow pacing in the beginning of the video. I will do a re-edit soon! You can skip to 2:00 for all the action...

    An installation in which people can scan their own body in 3D using a cheap pool, a webcam, some ink and some custom software.
    Through submerging your body in ink-dyed water, a camera mounted directly above the pool can take photographs at different time stages that can be converted into silhouettes and then later stacked on top of each other for a 3 dimensional representation of your body.

    thanks to Eyebeam center for Art and Technology for making this happen!

  5. An inflatable pool filled with ink, scans your body as you go deep in the water. The volume of your body is captured by a software written by Friedich in Open Frameworks and his own tool: MovieSandbox
